Can Dreamland get an outpost up here? It would sure beat paying $8.00 per jar to ship their sauce to my house.

Funny....I was just watching Man Vs. Food and Dinosaur BBQ was on! Looked so good I'm making it a pit stop on my way to Canada for a fishing trip!
I take it that it's worth the stop???

I was thinking the same thing regarding South Windsor but there is no way something like that would be going there...

Definitely worth a stop...if you are big into fishing...about 30 mins north of Syracuse (Pulaski) is Salmon Mecca right now in the east.

From people that know their BBQ in the Carolinas, they said Dinosaur rivals anything they've ever tasted down there. Took them to the Rochester one.

That said, I think Blue Smoke is still the best I've had: NYC!!!

If it's near Fairway, I think my lunch habits will be changing in a year.
It will be very close to Fairway BL.

Excalibur, what is Dreamland? PM me some info on them & I'll see if I can get the ball rolling on getting one of their franchises in the same complex.

Dinosaur started in Syracuse, so that's really saying something about South Windsor. Whether it's critical of the former or the latter is less clear. ;)

Dinosaur's clientele typically consists of regular city folk and bikers. It's a biker restaurant. You want to work there? Better have tattoos up and down your arm. I have never been to the NYC Dinosaur, but that's what the other two feel like.

Sitting in the bar gives you the real feel of a honky-tonk.

This is interesting. They are landing in a spot that is being developed as a yuppie heaven.

The bikers that the developers are expecting are supposed to look something like this:

Not what I would call your typical "biker" bar. More of an upscale, well to do, M-F White collar professional biker bar. You are not going to find Hell's Angels and Outlaws hanging at Dinosaur. Patron far more likely to be carrying an iphone than a weapon.

No gang members, yeah. But still lots of bikers. White collar bikers? No. Look at the article I linked to. Look at the people being interviewed eating ribs. Those are the people I run into there all the time. We've got biker bars all over downtown Buffalo and Rochester. I don't see Hell's Angels or gang members there. They're just bikers.

Those two drinking beers are called the customers. That makes sense to me. Don't look white collar. Looks like the crowd I run into up at Artpark in Lewiston for free concerts.

The wait staff though needs to be rough.

Not at all! Just saying not a dangerous place to go. When I lived in Corpus Christi a biker bar meant an Outlaw hangout. They were places to be avoided. Dinosaur is definitely not a place to be avoided.

We stopped at the Syracuse joint on the way back from the International Bowl. We pretty much ate every crumb. Place smelled great.

First time I went there I was on a sales call in downtown Syracuse. Could smell the bbq as soon as i got out of the car. After my appointment it was a quick walk to where the smell was coming from. Tremendous food!

Chester's in Groton has real BBQ and I've been to Memphis and Kansas City. Worth a visit if you're in the area

Favorite place is Jack Stack in KC. Great all around food, the burst ends KC is famous for are great and they have their special side with creamy corn that is as good as anything you'll eat.

I decided after downing 1/2 a super size fried platter w/whole bellies @ Lenny & Joe's that that would be my last meal followed closely by good BBQ and a trip to Gibson's.
